Your eyes don't deceive you. What you see is an opponent doing a solid for the goalkeeper by tying his shoes. That's when the referee decided the man who received the kind act was time wasting, so he awards the other team a free kick.
The L.A. Times' Kevin Baxter has a full report on this moment when sportsmanship still garnered a penalty and ensuing free kick.
Early in the second half of Thursday's match between Al Nahdha and Al Ittihad, Taisir Al Antaif, the goalkeeper for Al Nahdha, paused before a goal kick when he noticed the shoelace on his left boot had come undone. Because he was wearing his large white goalie gloves, Al Antaif was unable to rectify the situation himself so he began gesturing to teammates to come help him out.
Al Ittihad striker Jobson saw fit to get the match going quickly and decided to tie his opponent's shoe instead of waiting for someone else to do it. That would be sporting act No. 1.
When Al Ittihad won a free kick, Leandro Bonfirm was tasked with taking the gift. Instead, he intentionally misses the kick for marvelous sporting act No. 2.
Somehow we think the ref completely missed the entire brilliant exchange.
